The Big Agnes Seedhouse SL2 is made for 3 Season backpacking and for those who don't want to carry much weight. The DAC hubbed pole design allows you to set up the tent in seconds and there is no guesing as to which poles go where. It's a tight 2 Person set up so if you require extra room you may want to look at a larger double door superlight tent. The Big Agnes Seedhouse SL2 is an ultra-light tent for those looking for the lightest solutions around.
There's no buts about it: the Big Agnes Seedhouse SL3 is the lightest free-standing three-person tent the Outdoor Gear Exchange has ever sold. Its packaged weight of 3 pounds 15 ounces breaks down to a mere 20 ounces each for three people, and it's an attractive two-person option as well for those who desire a bit of elbow room at a still-light 31 ounces per person. The low weight of the Seedhouse is a product of its architecture; a single ridge pole, single door, and single vestibule combined with an airy mesh tent body and gossamer rainfly keep it below four pounds. We wouldn't recommend pitching it at the foot of Cerro Torre in 90mph winds, but it's strong enough for the 3-season backpacking needs of most users.
Getting out of the elements is great, but longer wilderness trips can lose their luster if you have to lug around a heavy tent. The Big Agnes Seedhouse SL 2 tent provides tons of space and weather protection for you and a partner without weighing a metric ton—in fact, it has a decidedly un-tonlike trail weight of 2.5 pounds, which can be further reduced to two pounds even if you bring just the fly, pole, and footprint (sold separately). Super-light doesn't mean super-lame, either, seeing as the Seedhouse has a nylon ripstop fly and floor, coated with PU for extra waterproofing, and seams that are fully covered with solvent-free tape.
To pitch it in a jiff, just use the single DAC Featherlite hub-style pole, clips, and reflective guylines and webbing—the Seedhouse will be good to go in minutes, and you won't even trip over it in the dark. You'll be able to toss your gear in the vestibule, stash small items in the mesh pockets, and sleep the night away, no matter what the weather's up to.
Getting out of the elements is great, but long-distance trips can lose their luster if you have to lug around a heavy tent. The Big Agnes Seedhouse SL 2 tent provides plenty of sleeping room and solid weather protection for you and a partner without weighing you down. This lightweight tent is a smart choice for multi-day backpacking trips or treks when solid shelter is a must, and trimming weight is essential.
The waterproof fly and floor keep moisture out thanks to a polyurethane coating, and PVC-free seam taping helps prevents water from working in between the stitching. The front vestibule protects your gear or your canine camp buddy from the elements. The super-lightweight DAC Featherlite NSL poles utilize press-fit connectors and lightweight hubs to make setup lightening fast, and reflective guylines and corner webbing makes it easier to find—and not fall over—your tent after late-night bathroom trips.
The ultralight, freestanding Big Agnes Seedhouse SL3 tent is for weight conscious backpackers who like to count ounces and still have a little elbow room to read at night.
